There’s plenty to love about WordPress

Why you should use WordPressHere at Direct Sites Online, we are big fans of the WordPress open source content management system.

After all, it has not become one of the world’s most popular web publishing platforms by accident.

So why are we such big supporters of WordPress? Here’s four reasons we just can’t go past it for simple small business websites.

  • It’s so easy to install and use: Once you have a hosting plan set up, you can install WordPress in a single click, with little or no technical skills. And then it is so simple to tailor for your business – adding pages, blog posts, images and more with a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) interface which means you don’t need to learn coding or HTML. And if you do want to learn how to go even further, the WordPress forums are packed with developers happy to share their knowledge.
  • It’s flexible: There are literally thousands of templates (themes) for you to download – from simple freebies to “premium” themes, which are extremely affordable (around $30-$60). Once your preferred them in installed, the intuitive admin panel means you can control the layout using both the them options, as well as “widgets” (for example links to social media sites, tag clouds, popular posts, calendar etc) and “plugins” (extra bits and bobs such as social sharing, author boxes, SEO packages, shopping carts and more)
  • It grows with you: All the above can be added to or taken away at any time as your business grows and develops. You can even add additional admins with varying levels of authority. So if you hire, for example, a person to update the blog, you could give them access to your blog only, rather than the whole site.
  • Google loves it: WordPress was developed with search engine optimisation in mind. It uses very clean code, which is great for download times, and has all sorts of other SEO-friendly features such as permalinks, tagging, comments and more. And, if that’s not enough, there is a myriad of SEO plugins to make optimisation even easier.

If you want a website that you can manage yourself, has great functionality and that is built for SEO, contact Direct Sites Online today on 9557 7623 or email
